RED BIRDS -by Aaron Bushkowski
A Western Gold Theatre Production Directed by Scott Bellis
This play is a bittersweet comedy about three generations of dirt-poor women whose lives are thrown into chaos when a birth mother is revealed who is both incredibly wealthy and ready to marry a charming gold-digger. “Red Birds” is a sister piece to the incredibly popular “The Big Blue Bird”, written by Aaron Bushkowsky, then given a workshop reading by Western Gold more than 12 years ago. “The Big Blue Bird” looked at the sad but poignant relationship between three generations of men: a grandfather, father and son. It was subsequently nominated for a Jessie Richardson Award for Outstanding Original Script.
